These devices have grown more complex over time. Once merely situated in an office corner, copiers now constitute intelligent components of your network.

Previously referred to as copiers or photocopiers, they’re now called multifunction printers or devices, or in short MFPs or MFDs. These handle things like copying, printing, scanning, faxing, emailing, storing information, and even connecting to the internet and cloud applications.
